Good: Was going to say a good introduction to smartphones, but... It was cheap (but thats not everything)
Bad: A few annoying habbits that ive decided not to live with anymore.
Comment: When using the keypad it will randomly throw in q's, which is annoying if your in a hurry. and the screen doesnt quite fit the frame on the internet.
Lately its taken to turning itself onto silent, airplane mode, and even turning itself off intermitantly (still with 3/4 power)
Its (now) a similar price to samsungs galaxy ace, and im going to buy that tommorow instead.
Good: easy to touch the icons without getting the wrong one
Bad: a little too small
Comment: the zte racer is a good phone
Good: NOT MUCH
Bad: JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING
Comment: u don't get to update android the screen is laggy, the processors rubbish and its flimsy and plasticky and slow. also freezes like everyday.
Good: fast, easy to use, its android
Bad: when i first got the phone i took the memory card out it never worked again. i also locked the phone and had to send it back to zte because no other stallls new how to fix it.
Comment: i really like this phone because the games are good and i have facebook on it ect. i have my ups and down with it. its hard to text on because the keyboards so small:L if you getting this phone go for it. i love it!
Good: It's got android :)
Bad: After about 12 months the phone seems to slow down and become unresponsive.
Comment: The ZTE is a great budget smart phone. I have it on contract for 2 years with three from August 2010. It's almost been a year since I have had it and I have to say it's really starting to show that it's a low budget phone. Slow and unresponsive interface unlike when I fist had it. The memory card stopped working recently also. So unfortunately three won't give me an early upgrade without paying the rest of the contract even though I informed them of all the problems and even said I would like to stay with them. So three shame on you. Policies I rate on 0 of 5.
Good: Wifi,Easy to use, not to heavy in your pocket, games, facebook, Camera,android EVERYTHING!
Bad: Nothing at all
Comment: I specifically think it is clever that it has a barcode scanner on and it look up reviews on the internet! the camera is awesome and in about 5 seconds it uploads to Facebook/Twitter. The Internet is very fast and comes up in about 10 seconds. I find some phones hard to use this was very easy. Also I hate heavy phones in my pocket this phone is very lite. The games are amazing and they are in 3d. ANDROID MARKET GET EVERYTHING FROM GAMES TO APPS AND IT IS FREE (well some of them)
Good: everything , wifi, screen , camera , 3g , hspda ,android, price EVERYTHING!!
Bad: NOTHIN AT ALLL
Comment: ITS A COOL, CHEAP ANDROID AND IT PLAYS GAMES IN3D!!!
Comment: i've just got my first phone it's rubbish so can't wait to get this!!!!
Comment: I just used the racer to make this .that says it all
Good: it is cheap for Android phone
Bad: Touch Screen hard to use, battery life is very bad, seems to drops calls for unknown reasons
Comment: This was the first Android phone I had, it great to upload photo to Facebook or Twitter, Google Calender & how it works with Google is wonderful, I like the camera but sometimes slow when turn on, with MicroSDcard ?
After a few months, the battery life is very bad, sometimes have to recharge the phone a few times a day, the alarm sometimes do not work or go off.
